Every morning when I stumbled into the bathroom, struggling to wake up, I was affronted by my old, dreary bathroom vanity. I know for most this wouldn’t seem like that big of a deal, but to me, it’s really the little things that get under my skin. I guess when it came down to it, the bare bones of the vanity was fine, but a facelift wouldn’t have gone astray. Luckily for me, Universal Timbers shared my passion for stylish and modern bathroom vanities Melbourne wide. They suggested I simply replace the doors and counter to freshen up my tired old vanity and were happy to deliver and install what I needed. Mornings aren’t quite as difficult now, waking up to a beautiful bathroom vanity!
My old company website was a real mess. Most of the links wouldn’t work, and when they did, they were going to the wrong places. The information was outdated and overall, it was a real embarrassment when people were visiting the site. I had made it myself to save money, but realistically, it was more of a deterrent than anything so I knew looking for a great web developer Melbourne wide was essential. The team at Splashbox were exactly what I was looking for and would be able to turn my mess of a website into something that actually works – both to provide potential customers with the information they need and to persuade them to visit our business. My website is now truly unrecognisable thanks to Splashbox and feel less embarrassed to direct customers there.
Winter is on the horizon and I’ve been feeling utterly unprepared. My wardrobe is full of summer dresses and sandals, and really, who has time to go shopping? I thought maybe online shopping would work, but I’m never home and would more than likely miss the package and getting to the post office can be a hassle. So what’s a girl to do? It was actually a co-worker that suggested I get online shopping orders delivered to my workplace – genius I thought! Someone is always around to collect and I knew the best place to buy shoes online Australia wide. Naturalizer shoes are super comfortable and they have a big range of boots, surely to keep my feet warm. I now have a pair on the way and winter is becoming a lot less daunting.
Moving home is notorious for being an extremely stressful process. Finding the time to pack, knowing when to pack what, organising time off work and then trying to find a reliable and trustworthy removalist service to move your precious belongings at a competitive price. It’s really no surprise that people find the entire thing daunting! This is why if I can, I’m always quick to recommend Woodhouse Removals to friends and family, as I know they are great removalists. Both times I’ve moved house I’d used them, and my possessions were well taken care of and delivered in one piece each time. For seamless removals Gold Coast wide you really can’t go wrong.
I’d like to think I’m a pretty good husband and father. I can cook, I’m around on the weekends for the kids and I give great gifts. Take mother’s day for example, coming up in just over a month. The kids are still at an age where they can’t organise a gift themselves so it’s up to me, and I have found the most luxurious spa Melbourne has to offer. Not only that, but said spa, Masque, provides a mother’s day package which includes all the trimmings – facial, foot treatment and a relaxing massage – as well as chocolate dipped strawberries and champagne! It is truly a decadent treat and the perfect gift for my wife. So as I said, I’m a great gift giver, with maybe a little help from Masque.
Winter is here! Well, it’s not technically here for another two months, but walking outside you’d think it had already hit. I mean, if this is what we’re experiencing in autumn, who knows what we’ll get in winter. It was this realisation which finally prompted me to look into organising a heating solution for my notoriously cold home. There were a few reasons holding me back, the major one being cost, but it was while putting on a third pair of socks that I knew a decision had to be made. I did some research and found that homes that had installed hydronic heating boilers were estimated to be 35% more cost effective than ducted heating. It felt within the realm of possibility for my budget so I have liaised with Hunt Heating to have a radiator installed before real winter comes.
Some things are better left to the professionals. Take forklifts, for example. My dad and I recently did a bit of work up on his farm just out of Sydney and realised halfway through the job we were going to need a forklift. We had an old one that was long past its use by date, so we decided to hire one from the guys at NTP Forklifts. My dad knew of them from way back in the day, and it was pretty easy to organise forklift hire Sydney wide with these guys. No fuss, no stress, and we got the job done much quicker than we would have.
I’ve been a mechanic for the better part of 40 years, and if there’s one thing I’ve learned in all my time it’s that you get what you pay for. Cheap and nasty doesn’t compare with quality, and I’ll always pay for quality. Take Tufflift, for example. These guys specialise in car lifts and hoists, and they’re built to last. I’ve been using the same hydraulic lift for 10 years. In fact, I’ve just bought another from Tufflift after expanding my workshop. It’s rare to find a company that care this much about a product, but Tufflift are far and away the best I’ve come across in my time.
My husband and I just celebrated our one year wedding anniversary, and I’m sure we can both safely say it’s been the best year of our lives so far. We had a lovely honeymoon in Paris, bought our first home in the city, started new jobs that are promising career moves, and I’ve just found out I’m pregnant – what a 12 months it’s been! For our one year anniversary, we sat down and watched our wedding video again. The team at C2 Video shot the beautiful wedding film and watching it again was like being there on the day itself. You don’t even notice the film crew on the day, and yet they never missed a single moment. It was such a joy reliving that day, and we owe it all to C2 Video. If you’re getting married any time soon, check them out.
I love a good deal. There are so many rip-off artists out there, and it pays to do your due diligence. Whenever I’m spending a lot of money on a product or service, I like to make sure I’m getting the best deal possible and value for my money. Most recently, that was with Blockout Blinds. My wife and I were renovating our kitchen and the finishing touch was the windows. We wanted blinds instead of curtains as they’re easier to use and clean, and a bit more durable in an area like the kitchen. A friend of mine worked in the industry, and he recommended Blockout Blinds. As always, I did my research and they seemed to come up as the winner. Great prices, exceptional service, and their product range was unlike anything I’d ever seen. The guys came out straight away, measured everything up and gave us a quote on the spot. Done. They’re coming out next week to install the blinds and I couldn’t be happier.
